SRINAGAR: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Tuesday registered a case to probe the attack at the army installation in Uri in Jammu and Kashmir in which 18 soldiers were killed and dozens others injured after four militants stormed the base.
The NIA took over the investigation from the Jammu and Kashmir Police, which had registered a case on Sunday, and began probe by collecting evidence available with the army formation at Uri, 102 kms from here.
Besides the arms and ammunition recovery, two mobile sets were recovered from the four militants and two Global Positioning Systems (GPS).
Official sources said the NIA team, which was now camping at Uri, would collect the DNA samples of the four unidentified militants and their pictures would be shown to Jaish cadres lodged in various jails of the state as well as other parts of India.
Two of the four bodies are charred below the waist, they said. The sources said while one GPS was damaged due to the fire, the other was being examined with the help of technical experts to ascertain the route taken by the militants and whether some help was extended to them by any local.
